The superiority of Walker's Pronouncing Dictionary 
OTer other productions of the same kind has been so long 
established that it would be superfluous to descant upon it. 
lie brought to the performance of bis task a spirit of patient 
investigation, extensive grammatical knowledge, and sound 
judgment. But in all works relating to languages, however 
perfect they may originally be, Time, that greatest of all 
innovators, will at length make reform indispensable. It has 
consequently been found necessary to introduce a few changes 
and additions in the present reprint of Walker's Dictionary. 
New words and definitions have been added; definitions 

■ which, by late scientific discoveries, are proved to be erro- 
neous, have been amended ; and, in some instances, where it 
had become obsolete, the pronunciation has been rendered 
conformable to modem usage. As in all books, but more 
especially in a Dictionary, correctness is an object of para- 
mount importance, the utmost care has been taken to exclude 
typographical errors ; and it is believed that the care has not 
been fruitlessly bestowed. On the cheapness, the convenient 
size, and the elegant printing of this volume, it is needless to 
lay a word ; tliey are so obvious that they cannot fail to be 
Doticed, even by superficial observers.

principles of language, we And that nome are 
M 4mpie and anmixed, that there is nothing 
reqvired but the opening of the mouth to 

make Aem andentood,aiid to form different 
sounds. Wbenoe they have the names of 
vawtis or veAees, or vocal sottnds. On the 
contrary, we find that tfiere are others wiuMe 
pronuncmtion depends on the particular ap- 
plication and use of every part of the moutb, 
as the teeth, the lips, die tongue, the palate, 
&C. which yet cannot make any one perfect 
sound but by their union with those vocal 
sounds; and these are called consonants, or 
letters sounding with other letters. 

Definition of Vowels and Consonants* 

Vowels are generally reckoned to be Ave 
in number ; namely, a, e, i, o.m; y and w 
are called vowels when they end a syllable or 
word, and consonants when they bci^ one. 

The definition of a vowel, as Httle liable to 
exception as any, seems to be the following : 
a vowel is a simple sound formed by a con- 
tinued efifusion of the breath, and a certain 
conformation of the moutb, without any alter- 
ation in the position, or any motion of the 
organs of speedi, from the nunnent the vocal 
sound commences till it ends. 

A consonant may be defined to be an inter - 
mption of the effusion of .vocal sound, arising 
from the application of the organs of speech 
to each other. 

Agreeably to this definition, vowels may lie 
divided into two kinds, the simple and com- 
pound. The simple a. e, o, are those which 
are formed l>y oneconrormatioD of the oivans 
only; that is, the organs remain exactly in 
the same position at tne end as at the begin- 
ning of thie letter ; wliereas. in the compound 
vowels t and u, the organs alter their position 
before the letter is completely sounded : nay, 
these letters, when commencing a syllable, 
do not only require a different podtion of the 
organs in order to form them perfectly, but 
demand such an application of the tongue to 
the roof of the mouth as is inconsistent with 
the nature of a pure vowel ; for the first of 
these letters, i, when sounded alone, or end- 
ing a syllable with the accent upon it, is a 
real diphthong, composed of the sounds of a 
in fa-lher, and of e in the, exactly corres- 
pondent to the sound of the nwm eyei and

SfOabieation.—'Diyiding words into svlla- 
Ues is a very differeiit operation, according 
to the different ends proposed bv it. The 
iMeet of syllabication may be, eiuier to en- 
itile children to discover the sound of words 
ihey are iinacqaainted with, or to show the 
etynolo^ of a word, or to exliibit the exact 
pmnnnciation of it. 

Wlien a child has made certain advances 
io reading', but is ignorant of the sound of 
■any of toe longer words, it may not be 
tnproper to lay down the common general 
rale to him, that a consonant between two 
rowels most go to the latter; and that two 
consonants coming together must be divided. 
Farther than tlus it would be absurd to go 
vitliachild; for telling him that compounds 
most be divided into their simples, and that 
sndi consonants as may begin a word may 
begin a syllable, reauires a previous know- 
ledge of words, which children cannot be 
id to have ; and which, if they have, 
the division of words into syllables 

jsary. Children, therefore, may be 

very asefaUy taught the general rule above 
neatioaied, as, in many cases, it will lead 
diem to the exact sound of the word, as in 
pnhvv-ded s and in others it will enable them 
to five a good guess at it, as in de'H-cate; 
ua this ia all that can be expected: forwhen 

we are to form an anknown oompownd mmikI 
out of several known simple sounds (wMcfa 
is the case with children, when we wish then 
to find out the sound of a word by spelling 
it), this, I say, is the only method that can 
be taken. 



As Mr. Sheridan was a native of Ireland, and 
had the b^t dpportunities of understanding 
those pecolianties of pronunciation which 
obtain there, I shall extract his observations 
on thatsuMect as the best general direction, 
and add a iew of my own, by way of supple- t1 
nent, whicli I hope will render this article f< 
of instmction still more complete. . 

The reader will be pleased to take notice, 
that as I have made a different arrangement 
of the vowels, and adopted a natation dif- 
ferent from that of Mr. Sheridan, I am 
obliged to make use of diflferent figures to 
mmrk tiie vowels, but still such as perfectly 

tom>«iw«nH tn hia. 




5*%Vhen the vowel a finishes a syllable, 
and has the accent on it, it is invariably 
pronounced i, as in day, by the English. 
To this rule thei^ are but three exceptions 
la the. whole language, to be found in the 
Words nther, papl, mamml. The Irish may 
think alfio the word rather an exception, as 
well as father : and so it would appear to be 
in their manner of pronouncing it, ri-ther, 
laying tike accent on the vowel a ; but in the

rough breatbinz or Mpiradon of the voweln, 
the papil should be told not to briog the 
voice suddenly from the breut,bat to speak , 
u it were, from the mouth only. 

It may be observed too, that the natives of 
Ireland pronounce rm at the end of a word 
so distinctly as to form two separate svltablt-ii. 
Thus storm and /arm seem sounded oy them 
as if written staw-runtf fa-nun ; while the

English sound the t 
the ~ *•—' 

* nearly as if 

■e applica- 
ad a word, 
at such a 
ound as if 
n England 
liable. To 
r the pupil 
ctise them 

the middle or Italian a, lengthened into 
load, baad, caad, regaad; while in Ireland 
the r, in these words, is pronounced with so 
strong a jar of the tongue against the fore- 
part of the palate, and accompanied with 
such an at^piration, or strong breathing, at 
the beginning of the letter, as to produce 
that harshness we call the Irish accent. But 
if this letter is too forcibly pronounced in 
Ireland, it is often too feebly sounded in 
England, and particularly in London, where 
I it & sometimes entirely sunk ; and it may, 
perhaps, be worthy of obsenation, that, 
provided we avoid a too forcible pronuncia- 
tion of the r, when it ends a word, or is 
followed by a consonant in the same syllable, 
we may give as much force as we please to 
this letter, at the beginning of a word, with- 
out producing any harshness to the ear : thus 
Rome, river, rage, may have the r as forcible 
as in Ireland ; but bar, bard, card, hard, kc. 
must have it nearly as in London. 



That pronnndation which distinguishes the 
laliabitaDts of Scotland is of a very different 
kiod ^m d»tof Ireland, and may be divided 
Qto the quantity, quality, and accentuation 
: the vowels. With respect to quantity, it 
Eiiy be observed, that the Scotch pronounce 
>lntost all their accented vowels long. Thus, 
If I mistake not, they would pronounce habit, 
hiy-lnt; tepia, tee-pid; sinner f see-ner; 
'Kscimts, ame-shuM ; and subject, toob- 
'tt* ; it is Dot pretended, however, that 

• That this is the general mode of pro- 
touncing these words In Scotland, is indis- 
(«table : and it is highly probable that Uie 
yotf.h have presened the old English pro- 
asnciatioo, from whicli the English them- 
selves have insensibly departed. Dr. Hickes 
ritserved long ago, that the Scots Saxonued 
in their language much more than the Eng- 
Ibb : and it is scarcely to be doubted that a 

every accented vowel is so pronounced, but 
that such a pronunciation is very general, 
and particularly of the t. This vowel is 
short in Englisn pronunciation, where the 
other vowels are long; thus evasion, adhe- 
sion, emotion, confusion, have the a, e, o, 
and u, long ; and in these instances the 
Scotch would pronounce them like the Eng- 
lish : but in vision, decision, ice. where the 
English pronounce the i short, the Scotch 
lengthen this letter by pronouncing it like ee. 

situation nearer to the Continent, and a 
greater commercial Intercourse with other 
nations, made the English admit of number- 
less changes which never extended to Scot- 
land. About the reign of Queen Elizabeth, 
when the Greek and Latin languages were 
cultivated, and the pedantry orshowln? an 
acquaintance with them became fashionable, 
it rsloot improbable that an alteration m tiie

As the sounds of the vowels are different in 
different lanarua^s, it would he endless to 
brinfiT parallel sounds from the various lan- 
guafes of Europe ; but, as the French Is so 
generally understood upon the Continent, if 
wecan reduce the sounds of the Eng^lish letters 
to those of the French, we shall render the 
pronunciation of our lanaruage very senerally 
attainable: and thin, it -Is presumed, will be 
pretty accurately accomplished by ODserving 
the foUowinjf directions - 



























The French have all our vowel sounds, and 
will therefore find the pronunciation of them 
very easy. Tlie only difficulty they will meet 
with seems to be i. which, though demonstra- 
tively composed of two successive sounds, ha'b 
passed for a simple vowel with a verv com- 
petent judge of English pronunciation*. The 
reason is, these two sounds are pronounced 
so closely together as to require some atten- 
tion to discover their component parts : this 
attention Mr. Sheridan t never gave, or he 
would not have told us. that this diphthong' 
is a compound of our fullest and slendereat 
sounds I and i ; the first made by the hirffesr, 
and the last by the smallest aperture of the 
mouth. Now nothing is more certain than 
the inaccuracy of this definition. Tlie third 
sound of a, which is perfectly equivalent to 
the third sound of e, when combined with the 
first sound of e, must inevitably form the
